Manwich Turkey Sloppy Joe and Cheesy Cornbread Casserole

As a busy mom, I love to feed my family healthy, filling meals but I don't always have time for an hour of prep. So needless to say, I am a big fan of slow cooker and casserole meals (and I LOVE leftovers)! I created this casserole using a family favorite shortcut- Manwich Sloppy Joe Mix. What is easier than mixing a few ingredients together and popping it in the oven, right? Manwich is packed full of flavor so I can skip the seasonings and extra veggies, and simply use this all-in-one sauce! Better yet, this tasty, family friendly dinner in under 45 minutes!

  • 1 can Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce (I used Thick and Chunky)
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 8.5 oz box corn muffin mix
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 can creamed corn


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Crumble turkey in a large skillet and stir cooking over medium heat until browned. 
  3. While the turkey is cooking mix the corn muffin mix, 1 egg, can of creamed corn, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, and milk in a large bowl. Stir until combined then let sit. 
  4. Drain grease from turkey, turn heat down to med low then add Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce. Let is warm and come to a simmer. 
  5. Spray a 8X8 baking dish with cooking spray then pour sloppy joe mixture into dish. Top with the cornbread mixture. 
  6. Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese (you can never be too cheesy, right?) on top and pop in the center of the oven.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until the cornbread is cooked through and golden.
  8. I take my dish out of the oven, add a sprinkle of more cheese, and bake for another 2 minutes until melted.
  9. Let cool slightly then cut into squares and serve.
Two of the main healthy ingredients: lean ground turkey and Manwich Thick and Chunky Sloppy Joe Sauce!
Did you know? Each can of Manwich is free of artificial flavors and preservatives.
Try all three sweet and tangy Manwich varieties!
Step one: brown the crumbled ground turkey then drain.
Meanwhile mix corn muffin mix with one egg, 1/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, and one can of creamed corn. Let sit.
Turn down the heat and add one can of Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce. Stir and bring to a simmer. 
Spray a baking dish with non stick spray and pour in sloppy joe mixture.
Top with cornbread mix.
Add another 1/2 cup of cheese for good measure! Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until cornbread is cooked through.
I like to take mine out, sprinkle on another 1/4 cup of cheese or so, and pop it back in the oven until the cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. 
Then let cool slightly, slice into squares and serve!
A delicious hearty meal for the whole family in under 45 minutes!

  1. This looks like an easy & quick meal, as well as something nutritious & yummy. Can't wait to try it!

  2. Your recipe sounds delicious--thanks for sharing! I would probably make Sloppy Joes first (gotta keep the family happy!)

  3. I would definitely try this recipe except I would use the bold and spicy MAnwich along with a few jalapenos added to the meat mixture and to the cornbread.

  4. I would make sloppy joes of course

  5. I LOVE your blog!! I get hungry every time you post!! You are so creative!!

  6. I really want to try this recipe now, it looks similiar to something I make with chili, which always gets devoured.

  7. I would like to try the meatloaf recipe! It looks like something we would enjoy. Your recipe looks amazing too!

  8. This is a meal my family would enjoy! Comfort food!

  9. Good old traditional sloppy joe's, they are my sons favorite!!

  10. I would make regular sloppy joes or a cheese sloppy joe casserole.

  11. I would make the traditional Manwich Sloppy Joe!

  12. oh, I have all of those ingredients in my pantry right now...I know what I'm fixing for dinner right now!!!

  13. We make a similar tamale pie at my house...always a hit, and easy to get on the table!

  14. I'm amazed at the exposure you get on your blog. My recipes are all home cooked and I seldom use anything but fresh ingredients and no canned soups. This looks very good and I've made it as well many times using my own Wimpie/Sloppy Joe recipe. Any suggestions how to increase my blog exposure? You seem to be doing something right. :).

    1. M.J., Social media is where it's at! I get most of my traffic from Pinterest and join as many group boards as I can. Also weekly blog hops help to get comments and shares too! Good luck! If you are on Pinterest I can add you to a few of my group boards if you are interested follow me on Pinterest then email me at

  15. This takes a lot longer than 25 minutes in the oven if you are using an 8x8 inch dish. Just a heads up!!

    1. How much longer?

    2. It only took me 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees to bake through. Then I did a few extra minutes to melt the added cheese. Let me know how yours comes out.

  16. Would def double the meat or halve the bread. Delicious but too bready...will def make again but with these changes.
